A pretty easy climb for the grade. Only two moves make it an .11d. Start on massive sidepulls to crimps. Throw high and fight to hang on to a sloper while clipping the 3rd draw. The crux is probably getting to the shelf above the 3rd draw, but is made easier by using a left drop-knee. After that stick it out on easy crimpy face climbing to the anchors.
